veggie salsa on baked fish

Here’s a quick, easy, go-to meal you can make mid week or anytime. Baked white fish topped with a delicious and super flavorful vegetable salsa.

After you’ve chopped up your veggies for the salsa you’ll have dinner on the table in minutes!

flounder filets

I used flounder in this recipe because I came across some nice fresh filets, flounder is a delicate fish with tender flakes, but honestly any white fish will do.

Cod is a wonderful substitution as well as grouper, halibut and sole to name a few.  If the fish is more thick and dense your going to have to adjust the cooking time a little, but other than that the delicious results will be the same.

The vegetable salsa is the shining star of this dish, the bright colors and vibrant flavors make whatever fish you use really shine.

Just generously cover the uncooked filets all over with the salsa and then let the oven do it’s magic.

The flavors will all meld together in great harmony.

Ingredients
  • 1½ lbs. white fish filets of your choice such as cod, flounder, sole, grouper
  • FOR THE VEGETABLE SALSA
  • 1 small zucchini, diced small
  • ½ red onion, diced small
  • ½ each of a yellow and orange pepper, diced small
  • a good handful of pitted mixed olives, slightly chopped
  • a good handful of sliced grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • a handful chopped parsley
  • olive oil
  • paprika
  • lemon wedges
Instructions
  1. Place all your chopped vegetables into a bowl, add the parsley, garlic, everything for the salsa, then drizzle in enough olive oil to make it a loose consistency, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place your filets into a glass baking dish that has been drizzled with olive oil.
  3. Salt and pepper the filets and give them a light sprinkle of paprika.
  4. Generously top the filets with the vegetable salsa, covering the fish all over, add in a few lemon wedges.
  5. Place into a 400 degree pre-heated oven for 15-18 minutes.
  6. NOTE: I used flounder which is more delicate and less dense, but if using a thicker fish adjust the time accordingly.

  1. That looks so good! It kind of reminds me of red snapper Veracruz which is also white fish baked with a salsa. I may have to make this tomorrow – thanks.
